UPDATED 11/20: All items are now available. Some of the designs changed slightly from the catalog. Here are the final products:###

Nixon, the French watch company, revealed the first wave of their Dark Side line on September 18th, but we've also seen their entire catalog, which reveals the planned Boba Fett watch -- and some other goodies.

There's no formal release date yet, but one official tweet says November of this year.

The last section of their 42 page catalog starts with a great shot of Boba Fett (in his Pre-Production #2 costume). We're then given an introduction:

The mysterious Boba Fett is the most notorious bounty hunter in the galaxy. Well paid and highly sought after, this infamous mercenary scours the galaxy for profit and personal reward while leaving an indelible mark on all whom he encounters. Frequently employed by the crime lord Jabba the Hutt, Boba Fett is also commissioned by the Sith Lord Darth Vader. Fett is one of six bounty hunters hired to track down the smuggler- turned Rebel Han Solo. It is Fett's shrewd calculations and stealth that allow him to best his criminal colleagues. He leads Vader to Cloud City, where the Rebel heroes had sought refuge from the Empire's impending forces. On the floating city, Han Solo is frozen in carbonite and placed aboard the bounty hunter's personal starship Slave I. After collecting his reward from the Empire, Boba Fett returns to Jabba the Hutt to collect yet another bounty on his prized cargo. However, Boba Fett and his ruthless Hutt employer underestimate the strength and determination of Han's friends, whose rescue efforts erupt into an explosive battle that destroys Jabba the Hutt and his vile court.

Without further ado, here are the products:

jaredlevey, welcome! So you already saw what was shown at SWCA (which we have at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6937P5ZoZE and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_sQEHbFZwdU)? We haven't learned anything new since then, e.g. from Dave Filoni or Daniel Logan. But here's hoping more of this sort of thing gets released, even online just for fans!

Welcome, Lucha! Thanks for the introductory post! Sorry to hear your mobile view was confusing; we'll take a look and get to work improving that ASAP. As for the Mandalorian emblem, not sure there's a literal reference to the number 7, as so much as the stroke flows that direction. We'll also look into that more and see about updating our guide at http://bobafett.com/manual/iconography/ if need be. smile

Star Wars: The New Republic Anthology is a new Boba Fett fan film, which clocks in at just over one minute. It's set 30 years after Boba Fett fell into the Sarlacc, which is a long while but conceivable for this armor-clad bounty hunter to rough it. With the Expanded Universe / Legends all wiped clean, it's up-in-the-air right now if Boba Fett is officially alive or dead.

Fan films about Boba Fett are nothing new -- we've logged over 75 -- but this one stands out. It has great production value, timing, and subject matter. Those are some of the reasons  why this film has been abuzz online as soon as it was released yesterday morning.

We caught up with Eric Demeusy for an interview:

http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/news/wp-content/uploads/boba-fett-fan-film-01-520x216.jpg

Tell us a little bit about yourself. What drew you to do this specific project? What were some of your favorite and/or important parts of the whole process?

I've loved Star Wars since I was in middle-school. The first scene I remember seeing was Luke and Leia swinging across the Death Star chasm in A New Hope. I remember thinking so this is Star Wars?. It just had a certain feeling to it that no other movie had and something about that is what I fell in love with. I became a huge fan from then on. George Lucas quickly became my favorite director and I tried to take after him in anyway I could. When I was a Junior in High School I made a twenty minute Star Wars fan film, learning how to do the lightsaber effect frame-by-frame in photoshop. The next year I did another one for my senior project and landed an internship at the local ABC news station. Star Wars is something I always admire as both a filmmaker and a fan. Something that sets Star Wars apart for me from other sci-fi worlds is the design. I'm not typically a big fan of science fiction but Star Wars doesn't feel like a sci-fi, it feels like an action adventure film set in space. To me a lot of that is the design, the ships, the creatures,and the characters. I always loved the look of the Storm Troopers and Boba Fett. In my short film '3113' I think it's apparent that Boba Fett was a big influence on the android design. I just think he's the coolest masked, suit-wearing character ever. Star Wars also became for me the only movie that has Boba Fett.

When the news came out that Lucasfilm and Disney were going to be doing Anthology films I was hoping they would do one about Boba Fett. I read confirmation that one of the Anthology films was in fact a Boba Fett film, but that it was a origin film. I realized quickly that a lot of fans and people I talked to didn't want a prequel. They had enough of that in the Saga prequels. One of the reasons Boba is such an interesting character is because of the mystery that surrounds him. They wanted to see Boba Fett as he was in the original trilogy, in his prime. Kicking butt, firing his gun, and using his jet pack! Something you didn't get to see much of, but wanted to. Not how he got there. I didn't want to see a Boba Fett biopic.

When we sat down to think of what would be the best version of a Boba Fett movie, we realized it was the story that needed to be told... Boba Fett survives the Sarlacc pit. He should be featured in a movie that isn't just a Boba Fett movie, but was set against something much bigger in the Star Wars universe, the rise of the New Republic. An event that Boba had a big role in, one in which he is the main character. Within that we would see Boba's story continue, we would see him in action, Boba doing what he does best, and we would see an interesting change in his character. One of Boba's biggest flaws is his lack of integrity, and in this story he starts to realize that. So I decided to go out and make this teaser in hopes that one day people would see and hear this story of Boba Fett's most vital mission, a pivotal point in his life and the galaxy.

We noticed it's the deluxe store-bought Rubies costume (don't worry -- we love every kind of Boba Fett costume!), yet re-painted to look amazing. How did you come up with the plan to re-invigorate it and add some touch-ups, like the boots with their spikes?

Well I knew that if I was going to do this the costume needed to be as close to the screen used version of Return of the Jedi as possible, on a budget of course, otherwise no one would believe it's actually Boba Fett. I started searching around and originally I was going to try and get someone who had already made a suit to play Boba. Logistically though for our shoot and the location of these people it wasn't possible. So I was looking for other options and found that there were people who made really great versions of the suit but they were pretty costly and time consuming to make. The best option I had and really the only way I could afford time and budget wise was to use the deluxe suit and modify it.

We went out to the location and did some screen tests of the suit to see what would and wouldn't hold up on camera. Pretty much the whole thing needed work. I found a lot of really good reference for every bit of detail the suit had in the screen used version and stuck as close as possible to that with some leverage on the wear and tear. I had never airbrushed before in my life so there was a learning curve as I did it. I tried to get Daz from Bobamaker on board but he was booked up to February. If the Boba movie does move forward, he should without a doubt be the guy making the suit.

The shoes, we went with custom made boots from CA Boots to make sure they were screen accurate. We took those and weathered the heck out of them. Scrubbed them with a pumice stone and airbrushed some stain, dirt and grime into them. The toe spikes were made by Jason Mitcheltree, who was the DP and actually wore the Boba suit. We used real metal from the strip and some wooden dowels for the spikes, painted them silver and weathered them.

No Jabba's Sail Barge wreckage and no Sarlacc goo, noted some eagle-eyed fans, which is all plausible -- this is science fiction after all -- but what are your thoughts on the backstory in this world you created? Were there other deliberate choices made?

Yeah these are all things I had to think very carefully about. I watched all six films at least three times EACH within a month plus all the behind the scenes over and over. I was studying like crazy the whole time. I would imagine that Jabba's Barge would have been scrapped by Jawa's or some other scavengers. The Sarlacc pit was a pretty well known place and I think word of mouth would have gotten out about what happened to Jabba, so scavengers would have had a field day. Any of the smaller bits of remains would have been covered. Actually a fun fact about the imperial dunes where we shot is that the dunes move about a foot each year. Tracks from the day before get covered by the wind. I would imagine it to be very similar if not more so in the Dune Sea on Tatooine.

As far as the goo, this was also discussed before we shoot. I imagined Boba would have been walking through the desert for at least a day, maybe two to get back to where Jabba's palace was, and it is nothing but sun out there. The goo would have dried up by then. If we had shown him crawling out of the pit it would make since to have some saliva on him.

Your visual effects are top-rate. As you noted on Vimeo, it's all Cinema 4D. In the making of at ericdemeusy.com/starwars, it looks like you re-skinned a 3D model, if not making a new Slave I model. Specific to Fett and his ship, what did you start with and what did you change?

Thank you! Yeah I was going back and forth on whether or not I'd do the ship practically or CG. I really wanted to do it practically but the biggest model I could find was only about a foot in length and that wasn't big enough to get the right amount of detail in. So I went the CG route because I know it well. I found a halfway decent model on scifi3d.com, the original model was done by A Wiro. The model was a good starting point. It had low res texture applied to it so it was already UV'd but needed to be retextured. I went through all of the textures and repainted them at 5K and built layers and layers that were stacked to give it a more realistic look with chipped paint, scratches, smudges, dents and all of that. That process took me quite some time to dial in the detail and make it feel like part of the scene. That shot took me about 5 days to render on my home computer. It was later composited by Evan Langley who did the compositing on the piece.

To this day, a story film about Boba Fett is still officially unconfirmed, but here you got the web talking about it again today. On the flip side, the original actor who played Boba Fett, Jeremy Bulloch, liked this film on Facebook, which is a great helmet nod among Boba Fett fans. Where else do you hope this project will go or take you?

Wow! That is so cool that the real Boba Fett saw this! That's really cool to think about. I'm really glad people are talking about Boba, I think a lot of fans really want the Anthology film but how it's done is thin ice. I have a Boba Fett movie burning to be told, I would love to tell that story and my hope is to see that version fully realized. When I thought about a Boba Fett movie I had to really think about what it would be. What would it be about? How do you have a main character who is so mysterious without taking that away? Do you ever see him with his helmet off? What does he do after the Sarlacc pit and is it significant to the Star Wars universe? It's a very tricky character if you just go at it from a surface level, or if you try to go too far into his past. I'm a big fan of Boba Fett and this is the movie I want to see. I have done a lot of reading as to what fans say about their wants as well and I think the story the Jason and I have come up with is perfect, I seriously love it. Hopefully we can influence the Anthology film in one way or another.

In collaboration with a network of other Star Wars fan sites -- Yakface, Jedi News, Jedi Temple Archives, Star Wars Action News, Idle Hands, Teekay-421, and MintInBox.net -- here is your one-stop download for being ready for Force Friday on September 4th:

Download PDF

This PDF checklist came about since there isn't one. Despite all the buzz, there wasn't a clear cross-brand list to even know what's available this Friday. Instead of dealing with that secrecy, these Star Wars fan sites worked tirelessly to compile a document for you, the fan.

Note that the checklist is focused around action figures and related collectibles. It excludes books and apparel. For any of those involving Boba Fett, we'll add those separately below.

Force Friday begins at the minute Thursday night becomes Friday morning: midnight. As for Boba Fett merch, here are the highlights to start finding:

  • Hasbro


    • Hasbro has a Boba Fett figure in The Force Awakens packaging, although it's noted clearly on the back it's a classic figure from The Empire Strikes Back. This 3.75 figure comes with an Armor Up accessory in a desert fatigue and will retail for at or around $12.99.

    • Hasbro also has a new Star Wars Chess set in their The Force Awakens packaging. It was spotted on a shelf at Walmart in South Carolina by @RyansPitch on August 28.

    • Boba Fett Hero Mashers -- as a basic figure ($14.99) and a deluxe two-pack with Han Solo ($24.99) -- are also newly available

    • Hasbro's Black Series Titanium Slave I is also on the list, which retails for $4.99

    • Hasbro took over the MicroMachines line from Galoob and they're back: Clone Army Raid, which has The Force Awakens packaging but clearly notes Attack of the Clones for Jango Fett's Slave I in this 3-pack

    • Boba Fett Interactive Room Guard, perfect for keeping your stash safe -- from other intergalactic space thieves

  • LEGO has a Buildable Jango Fett (75107), which consists of 85 pieces

  • Walgreens will be stocking Funko's white Prototype Boba Fett POP Vinyl figure, which has already begun selling through a separate deal in Australia

  • Random House and LucasBooks are unveiling Star Wars: Aftermath this Friday (although it's already in some stores early); it may have a Boba Fett reference on page 300, which is significant since it's part of the new Star Wars canon and it takes place after Return of the Jedi

  • Topps has a Boba Fett dangler, which looks like a keychain, only available at Target

On a lighter (for the pocketbook) side, Target has a #ShareTheForce campaign, which has already started. Their website features Boba Fett -- although his helmet is backwards. You can upload your memory of Boba Fett to be tagged in their 3D database.

Walmart also ran an ad that shows Boba Fett on a collectible Star Wars Trading Discs which can be used for an exciting game. These are called Topps Star Wars Galactic Connexions, which are expected to be found in their toy aisle this Force Friday. Here's a picture on the right, thanks to @McHale262.

Forget the unboxing videos, here are some gameplay videos of Boba Fett in the new Disney Infinity 3.0 game that was just released.

We've also noted some lines we're hearing Boba Fett say in the game. It's all voiced by Temuera Morrison, who played Jango Fett in Attack of the Clones and who re-dubbed Boba Fett starting in the 2004 DVD release through to present.

How to unlock Boba Fett in the game

Outside of the main Toy Box Hub, you need to find the Boba Fett token in the game in order to play as Boba Fett in the Rise Against the Empire expansion of the game. When you climb up Jabba's Sail Barge, right alongside the Sarlacc Pit, the Boba Fett token is on one of the planks / beams / boards off of the ship.

Boba Fett combat gameplay

Fett rides in on a Bantha to take on the Sand People (Tusken Raiders), who may have stolen the part, according to the narrator helping you. (It ends up being energy binders.)

When Boba Fett finishes on the ground floor, he says, Now I truly am the best bounty hunter ... there's ever been. After climbing up the cliff, while shooting at Tuskens, he adds What a waste of my time. There wasn't even a price on your head. You cannot escape me. None can escape me now.

Boba Fett Toy Box gameplay

This video shows an overview of the Toy Box Hub, including some beginner gameplay as Boba Fett within that world. One line we hear Boba Fett say in this is, Another mission, another pay day.

Boba Fett's upgradable skills in the game include all of the following:

With shops allowed to take pre-orders starting today, the new Tamashii Nations Movie Realization Boba Fett as Ronin is a new premium figure that ships this November.

This inspired take on Boba Fett comes with a movable helmet scope, a Japanese sword accessory, replacement left and right wrists, removable missile jetpack, and removable shin tools.

The figure retails for 9,504 Yen, or about $76 U.S. dollars. It's 6.6 (170mm) tall and made of PVC.

This was first announced at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, which we covered from the floor on April 21st.

Because these figures are especially hard to get, and not just available anywhere, here's our curated punch-list of where and for how much you can get the figure.

Most international shipping uses FedEx. Many of these vendors, but not all, process payments with PayPal, which generally handles currency conversion. We've normalized all prices to American Dollars, since most of our readership uses dollars.

If you find one (or more), let us know where in the comments to help out other Fett fans.

The latest teaser trailer for Star Wars Battlefront was released today, highlighting a new mode called Fighter Squadron. After seeing all kinds of playable ships, the trailer ends with the Millennium Falcon being chased by Slave I!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjqqwZGNHPg

Look closely and you'll notice a problem: the ship's wings are in their landing position, not their flying position. Were the trailer animators rushing the work or misinformed? Or is this a bug already in actual gameplay, which they hopefully will fix?

Back in April during the Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, we saw it confirmed that Boba Fett was a playable character. This news about his ship, Slave I, is welcome news.

The game is slated for release this December. There's a Digital Deluxe Edition and a Standard Edition, but Boba Fett is available in both for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

One perk of pre-ordering is an early bird marketing push, which touts the Battle of Jakku. A planet that will be introduced in Episode VII: The Force Awakens, Jakku is the planet seen with Boba Fett in the previous trailer. Here's the verbiage on the EA microsite:

Players who pre-order Star Wars Battlefront can fight the battle one week early on December 1, 2015. All other players will get access to this free content on December 8th, 2015.

I bought it online from Germany just for the box variant and the newer looking armor which is kind of weird.

Is the bottom portion of the front of the box a sticker? That part of the packaging is certainly different.

It also looks like Boba Fett's left wrist is positioned differently. In one you can see his wrist gauntlet; the other you can't as easily see it.

With the eBay one, it's interesting to see "copyright 2013" on the back. These new boxes seem like they may be new, although Hasbro already finished out this "wave" of Fett. Perhaps it's international packaging? But usually that's multi-lingual...

Any other things you're noticing that are different?

Welcome to BFFC, Andy! Great to have you here.

Good looking out about the box variant. This could be a later release. Where did you get the figure?

As for the armor, what are you seeing that's different? For reference, here's a normal release of the figure:

You're seeing it here first: Funko's upcoming Boba Fett (Prototype), a Walgreens exclusive, which will be in stores this September!This comes to us from the inside and, since they're huge Fett fans, the Boba Fett Fan Club got the scoop!

The figure is part of a four figure exclusive Star Wars classic wave. We're told that Walgreens will be ordering a ton and the plan is to keep it on shelves for at least a year.

Funko has made many bobble-head figures and objects. This surely won't be the last.

This also isn't the first Walgreens Boba Fett exclusive. Last year, they came out with the Prototype Boba Fett within Hasbro's The Black Series. While there were some hassles with the online pre-order, the figure was a big hit in stores and kept getting re-stocked for a long while. This time around, there won't be any online pre-orders.

This also marks our 500th photo-of-the-day in as many days in a row. Woo-hoo!

Our video interview series from Star Wars Celebration Anaheim wraps up today with the best for last: Jeremy Bulloch.

We talk to the original man behind the mask of Boba Fett to learn more about what happened when, who said what, and how great it was to be in each scene of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

The Twelve Parsec Stare is the latest Boba Fett fan film -- one of at least 73 fan films that fans have made, complete with costumes, sets, or other production value. This new short film was self-produced by Ruined Films, a Finnish production company. They wanted to make a short film that blended sci-fi and Western genres and shot this in a week. Here's the synopsis:

Boba Fett, the infamous intergalactic bounty hunter, has tracked his next prey into a dusty saloon in the outskirts of a remote space port. In the shadows of the busy space bar the hunter confronts his target's three sinister henchmen. Who will blink first?

Today, the Western Boba Fett film has its world premiere on YouTube:

We spoke with Teemu Valve, who worked as a producer as well as in the prop and costuming departments of the film.

Tell us about the The Twelve Parsec Stare fan film and how it's unique among other Star Wars and specifically Boba Fett fan films. What drove you all to making a fan film around Fett?

The Twelve Parsec Stare is both a fan film and a technical showcase and something we've been planning for a long time. Our first ambition was to make a Western short film with the genre's usual lingering atmosphere and style of cinematography. Star Wars universe is something the director (and of course us all!) had wanted to recreate from his early childhood, which took the planning towards the genre combination. The idea was to tell an imaginative Star Wars story in a way the classic Western movies would have told it. The rumours about the oncoming Boba Fett spinoff film also initiated our spark into getting there first!

Boba Fett's costume looks unique to your film, rather than intentionally representing one of the film-accurate or prototype costumes. Did your team build the costume just for the movie or did someone already have something that was then modified? What kind of helmet was procured or built? Who did the paint and/or build, and how long did it take?

Our Boba costume is indeed a conversion of the Empire Strikes Back version, which was modified a bit for our needs. It's actually my personal costume, originally created for the trooping use in the service of the worldwide Star Wars costuming organization The 501st Legion. The fan-made costume was assembled and painted by myself, although the helmet seen in the movie footage was painted by my legion friend BH-11380. We had a total of three helmets in our wardrobe, just in case. The making of the costume was a 14 months journey.

The most visible modification to the costume is the poncho, which drew its inspiration from Clint Eastwood's attire as the Man with no name as well as from Jango Fett production pictures and the Mythos Boba Fett statue created by Sideshow Collectibles. As our film is a crossover between Star Wars and classic Spaghetti Western we felt that it would be an appropriate detail mod for the Fett costume. We also believe that Western influences were something they had in mind when creating Boba's character in the first place!

How does the costume hold up and move in the fight scenes? Jeremy Bulloch and other actors have always commented on how cumbersome it was; maybe you all agree or disagree. Or maybe you all changed it up to move more. Or did you make a stunt suit?

The costume is certainly quite heavy in the long-time use and the filming days took their toll on the actor. The armor limits the mobility of the person wearing it, so we had to plan the scenes and the choreography accordingly. Where we could (thanks to the camera angles or composition choice) we lightened the suit by removing the kneepads, shoes or the jetpack for a moment to make it a bit easier for the actor. There's always some wear and tear to the filming process as well and we needed to make some field repairs now and then. Luckily we didn't experience any major accidents and the costume held up through the action!

Since the project is a portfolio piece for Ruined Films, what's your favorite part overall about its production that took everything up a notch? Any details specific to producing and/or art departments, like the props or costumes?

This is an interesting question, for we work with a really compact crew. Because of this everyone in the team gets to see and participate actively in different production phases. For example our director is also the visual effects artist and the editor was busy working in the prop and set departments of the film too. I think each film we make is better than the last one as the gathered progress in practical filmmaking process and in team spirit can be put into the use in the following project. Making a movie without an actual budget also pushes the team into creativity and making out of the box solutions, which is actually pretty useful in the end!

This was the first time we had a chance to include a proper extra cast in the production and we feel it really made a difference in how the scene looks. If we'd have to name a favorite part in what made the film and most of its production value, it would have to be the great set, with the props we managed to put together and the magnificent extras who were kind enough to help us during the film's principal photography.

Announced earlier today on the official Topps Star Wars page on Facebook is an exclusive, oversized Boba Fett card. It's an SDCC 2015 exclusive.Their announcement revealed it's part of a set of larger cards:

Topps will have 10 sets of oversized cards featuring classic Star Wars characters on iconic Topps designs. Find us at Booth 2913-J.

It's unclear if this oversized card is part of the same 10 x 14 series that Topps recently marketed as wall art. Those prints retail for $99.(Helmet nod to The Collectors Cantina for the heads up about this announcement.)

This is the one that I have:

The plastic at the top left corner looks like someone stored something heavy atop it, as there is some slight crush to the frame, and the bottom right corner of the box is slightly bent out of place, also.

Thank you for your quick response!

Geti, glad to hear! It looks like the current pulse is a low demand for that particular figure. eBay has many of them right now in great condition -- unautographed -- and not fetching bids even around $10-15. That said, online auction at any given point in time isn't the best indicator of demand or value.

Perhaps holding on to the figure for a while longer and keeping it in as good of condition as possible could fetch more in the future. There seems to just be a lot of unloading of the toy right now given the increased demand from Disney's new push since taking over Lucasfilm and churning out new films, merchandise, and more.

Greetings all I'm a newbie here and along with everyone else like Bobba Fett. Still trying to get my bearings around hear. How do I upload an avatar to use? And I am also looking for a cool shirt that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Just got back from Disneyworld and didn't find anything with the Bounty Hunter on it. Was really bummed!

Welcome BH77!

To upload an avatar, visit your profile page at http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/boards/user/7263/ and then click "Your Picture."

For shirts, we have a database of almost everything, new and old. Maybe one of these looks good to you, without costing a fortune? http://www.bobafettfanclub.com/bounty/apparel/clothing/

Good luck -- and glad to have you here!

Great question. The POTF2 had several green-boxed items, but it sounds like it's one of these:

If not, here's the list of all of them:

Generally speaking, Jeremy Bulloch's autograph certainly increases the value. The condition of the box/card and plastic all factor in as well. There are places that "grade" the condition, but that happens more with very vintage (circa 1979 - 1985 Boba Fett collectibles) rather than the Renaissance in the 1990's of new collectibles.

Take a look at eBay for the price of the base collectible, average the numbers of ones with actual bids, and then mark it up a bit because of the autograph.
